On Tuesday evening I was blessed by my friends at work with a fun Going Away Party! We met up at River Jack's, a restaurant that looked good from their menu selection in the "Restaurant Menu" section in the phone book. It happened to be close to my apartment.
It really has been such a blessing to work here. I've said this before, but it still holds true! Everyone has been so nice and really friendly. I'm leaving here realizing that I'm not just leaving this assignment location, but I'm leaving friends as well. How wonderful that that's been true, and how sad to go!
There were 10 of us all together that were able to come, but one missed the picture. (So no, I wasn't counting wrong!) These have been wonderful women to work with and I'm looking forward to keeping in touch with them. While of course I'm excited for Arizona, I'm sad to leave these friends!
I've been wanting some good chocolate these last few days, but wanted to be smart about my choices. I decided that I could order a great salad for dinner, and still enjoy a wonderful dessert, as long as I made healthy choices the rest of the day. Well, when this came out, I knew I was in for a treat!
It was so good that I was excited to not eat the whole thing so I could save a little for a 3am craving! That was really worth it as well! :)
After the get-together, I headed back to my apartment to pack. I had been noticing that the river finally opened up, but I hadn't walked back there yet. If you remember, this was a picture I posted back in January about my apartment complex.
Well, I'm happy to report that this is what it looked like yesterday! Yeah for signs of spring!!
Yes, that's a little bit of ice you see floating along, but for the most part it's pretty clear.
I really love being on the water, and was able to spend some good time with the Lord, just being silent with Him. It was an especially peaceful location, which is just what my heart needed.
